Hawthorne Junction at the Chicago city limits around sunset. Chicago / Cicero Illinois. June 2008., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo around sunset back in June of 2008.
We are facing west on the Canadian National Railroad's former Illinois Central RR Iowa Division Mainline at Hawthorne Junction.
Hawthorne Junction is located immediately on the Chicago city limits border, at west suburban Cicero Illinois USA, at approximately West 33rd Street and South Kenton Avenue on private property.
The crosstracks in the background, are the north and south running Belt Railway of Chicago.
To the left of the photo where the metal shanty is, was the location of Belt Tower prior to 1990.
